mircea_popescu: what, you think rando intern from bankruptington post is counting anything ?
asciilifeform: nah, it is legitimacyspray.
asciilifeform: for the pre-coded output.
mircea_popescu: sounds a lot more like the giddy excitement of the vicarious rape victim.
asciilifeform: now i dun work at diebold, but it is hard to picture that a mr t win is not regarded as 'societal seekoority threat' and as such not any more permissible than , e.g., 'pirate party' senator.
mircea_popescu: hey, you're committed to this "controlled society" model, things are gonna go a certain way in yer head no matter what happens.
asciilifeform: dunno, if mr t on the throne, i could swallow the 'they got unplugged from control'
asciilifeform: esp when the crematoria open for business.
mircea_popescu: anyway. if clinton "wins" we get to find out just how large trump's genitalia's were.
asciilifeform: this, yes.
mircea_popescu: and alongside his, the collective white-whatevers.

asciilifeform: most interesting scenario would be if he were to crash his plane and get replaced franco-style with a younger d00d
mircea_popescu: eh.

BingoBoingo sometimes dreams of alt-Murica with Tilden presidency
mircea_popescu: or tom cruise.
mircea_popescu: trinque that piece is particularly scandalous. imagine, the only writer worth two shits to ever crawl out of that god forsaken hole, not only a living testament to how smoking twenty cigars a day doesn't give you cancer ; but even daring to represent black slavery as a carefree life of exact equivalency to the shenanigans of today's barristas and waitresses with jezbel aspirations!
mircea_popescu: mark twain is as much a threat to "our" democracy as trump could ever hope to be.
trinque: meanwhile every other search result was some barista crowing about what a man of the people to see such wisdom in a slave, and isn't this such an insight into the nature of *humans*
trinque: fucking flatland even then; it had no chance.
mircea_popescu: the reason blacks back then weren't intelligent and well spoken as now has to do with the cruel conditions in which they lived. back then, unlike now.

trinque: ben_vulpes: so we're going to be taking businesses from OR like we are CA, eh?
ben_vulpes: someone actually advanced the argument that "there's no evidence that corporations will pass the cost on"
trinque: that's fine.
ben_vulpes: trinque: do business here, pay taxes on it here iirc.
mircea_popescu: there's also no evidence that a bunch of dorks can make rules for people with money.
trinque: ben_vulpes: why would they want to continue to do that?
mircea_popescu: trinque the idea is that "someone will have to".

ben_vulpes: remedial physics or what
ben_vulpes received his assembly instruction manual for the corvette today, has been a solid remedial american cars course so far
ben_vulpes: also holy heck computers ruined cars, not in their automation but in the inane horseshit the engineers crapped out once they could re-diddle every part every year
ben_vulpes also went for a ride in a friend's lotus elise, a car that basically does not change from year to year
adlai: supposedly "this chemistry department is the one that has the most non-chemistry (ie, physics and math) prerequisites of all chemistry departments in israel, maybe even the entire world" ...mkay
adlai: ben_vulpes: i assume this is more of an "owner's manual" type thing, and you're not now staring at twenty crates of corvette parts that you're gonna put together yourself?
adlai would not object to the latter, given time and space to work; but doesn't think they make'em like that anymore?
ben_vulpes: adlai: no, this is an actual assembly manual.
ben_vulpes: repro, but a very fine one.
ben_vulpes: the car is ~intact. the AIM is a reference tome on how it went together in the first place.
adlai: so, still useful for best ways to replace parts that wear?
ben_vulpes: i have 2 smallish repairs on the docket: replacing the seatbelt and fixing the blend door in the HVAC system. coming up with a plan for the first was trivial, once i had assembly plans for the seats and restraints in hand. i have a bead on how to diagnose the hvac blend as well, similarly derived from the heat control actuator harness assembly diagrams.
ben_vulpes: odds are that The Vacuum System actuating the blend door is leaking. upside is that this may take my idle from 1050 down to 800 (and possibly even reclaim some HP) if i do plug some leaks.
adlai: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-07#1563741 << btw, excuse my nitpicks, but 'crack' is actually the verb for separating the various hydrocarbons apart from crude ☝︎

ben_vulpes: yeah, i'm aware that it's a term of art in the refining biz.
ben_vulpes: burning them is a further reduction in chain length.
adlai: er that's not quite right either. confirming that i didn't spew nonsense into the internet reveals that, while cracking does describe part of the process of turning heterogenous crude into several homogenous smaller-chain hydrocarbons, it typically does involve breaking bonds
adlai: but iiuc combustion is a pretty total obliteration of chains. co2 isn't often referred to as 1,1-methandione, is it?
ben_vulpes: not unless you're trying to ruin the joke, no
adlai takes off hat, for dearly departed joke

mircea_popescu: ok, so i'm ready to adjudicate in the matter of the hallo ween st. elliot fanfic contest.
mircea_popescu: it is an interesting task, because the entries all suffer from the same affliction, which is formalism, but suffer from it in very different ways. bingoboingo's has a very formal composition - he's deliberately and evidently put anything & the kitchen sink in there ; diana's very formally constructed, she starts from a tiny base in stark contrast to bingoboingo's all-engulfing endlessness then follows all the angles methodica
mircea_popescu: lly resulting in something like a sugar cube ; hanbot's formal in form, which either through inhabituation or because poetry is an actual and legitimate artform (which seems rather dubious to be honest) is less grating than the other two.
mircea_popescu: therefore i proclaim her the winner, with the mention that while none of the participants are exactly yet shakespeare, they're certainly much further down the path of shakespearing than the common man, and so congratulations!

adlai will keep a rough headcount as the years pass
mircea_popescu: should be directly obvious. do the teachers publicly rebuff students for being inadequate and ask them to leave ?
mircea_popescu: if not, not real college.

BingoBoingo woke up today an undecided voter. It was weird. I had every intention of voting for my boy Gary Johnson, but on the drive to the polling place uncertainty hit me. And this the 124th ballot in the 5th precinct of Helvitia township in Madison County, Illinois was submitted for the TrumpenReich
BingoBoingo hits the showers
PeterL: people keep telling me that a vote for Johnson is a vote for Trump (because it is somehow stealing a vote from Hillary, who we only want to vote for to stop the monster Trump), so I guess I voted for TrumpReich too
asciilifeform: heil tritler.
danielpbarron abstains from voting
BingoBoingo: PeterL: Doing the math for myself and seeing how empty the box of registered voter cards was it appeared that in my jurisdiction voting Johnson would have been stealing from Trump to help Hillary. #MakeIllinoisASwingState

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo dun worry about it, they'll fix it later if the counts don't come out right
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Nah, they'll just have more undeaded ballots next door in St Clair County to balance it out.
mircea_popescu: PeterL those people read way too much myspace, which is how they ended up with the notion that hillary has a chance or something.
mircea_popescu: generally in bipartisan systems a vote downlist has principally the effect of hurting the favorite. that much is correct. nevertheless, the notion that hillary's a favourite is ludicrous.
mircea_popescu: she lost fucking nh, she's going to carry california and thaqt's it. first presidential candidate with <10% of electoral votes in the history of that empire.

PeterL: I have seen a bunch of memes popping up on arsebook praising Obummer for having "8 years with no scandals", they seem to forget that the scandals plaguing Hillary stem from her time as part of the Obummer administration
mircea_popescu: they also seem to forget the five or so times putin pulled his pants down and fucked him like a little bitch in front of intl orgs.
mircea_popescu: or the time his inept healthcare bill nearly sent the country into insolvency.
PeterL: but at least he hasn't had any sexual scandals come to light! (yet)
mircea_popescu: or the time he destroyed the last shreds of respectability for the supreme court, what with the tax that's not a tax.
mircea_popescu: or the other five thousand billion times.
BingoBoingo: Also Obola had scandals "Fast and Furious", "Malia Twerking", etc
PeterL: prog: puts hands over ears "la la la I can't hear you, you racist!"
mircea_popescu: right. there were no scandals because he's dumb and deaf.
PeterL: Obama remais a clean slate, everything just slides off him, and the progs still project all their pet policies onto him despite his actual actions to the contrary
mircea_popescu: iirc indiana and kentucky close at 6, so should be interesting
mircea_popescu: "oh, those don't count because trump won"
PeterL: right, those lean republican so they don't matter because they were already baked into the polls that they would swing trump
mircea_popescu: PeterL and the fundamental reason is that he's black and they're racist. in their minds, he's subhuman, and consequently incapable of action, intent, responsibility etc.
mircea_popescu: PeterL yeah, up until the vote turns out +20 trump rather than +4 as the polls showed.
PeterL: and the girls think he has a sexy speaking voice
mircea_popescu: the girls just think he's a tall black man with a small dick.

Framedragger: sure, that was a shitshow
mircea_popescu: no, i mean obama fucking up with his healthcare bill and nearly sending the country into insolvency thereby.
Framedragger: but i thought it was just a negotiating tactic by the republicans - had happened before
mircea_popescu: unless you want to put it on the same sex marriage idiocy, but this is bestowing unwarranted importance on the faggot party.
mircea_popescu: lol. and what else, putin just didn't understand how the world works ?
mircea_popescu: "negotiation tactic". obama fucked up the healthcare.
Framedragger: okay
mircea_popescu: incidentally, they all AGREE today that he fucked it up. and it "needs to be fixed".
Framedragger: (re. putin, can't see how one could disagree there)
mircea_popescu: somehow they ALSO all omit to point out that a) they were wrong and b) the others were right ; or propose any sort of penitence, such as you know, hanging themselves.

mircea_popescu: the idiots may think that unreported crime/fires/rapes/whatever never happened, but it's not how it works.
PeterL: well, there was a visible change in the reported polls over the last couple weeks, that is what I am referring to
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo they raped him more last time because "not in electorally sensitive locale". the people who got it easy then for that reason are getting shafted now
mircea_popescu: it all balances out, so that the usg can pretend it has a gdp and the oligarchy can pretend it's in business.
mircea_popescu: the business of squandering the tax receipts, but w/e.
PeterL: basic economics: if they wanted prices to go down they should have increased supply (hire more doctors), instead they increased demand (forced everybody to buy the "insurance")
PeterL: suprise suprise, the cost went up
mircea_popescu: they can't hire more doctors, because they're already hiring all the doctors that exist.
trinque: speaking of the motherfucking health care, my premium for the shittiest plan that's available just went up by 32%
PeterL: they could pay to put more people through doctor school, or something
mircea_popescu: the only way out is to separate medical care from social security ; and to shoot anyone found to have engaged in fraud for the past decade.
trinque: but it is not a tax y'see!
mircea_popescu: PeterL right, because if i put more people through the clothes shredder i'll get more supermodels right ?
trinque: because they launder it through an "insurance company"
PeterL: there is also the stupid US practice of tying health insurance to your employment, instead of having an open market
PeterL: I don't expect car insurance to be covered by my employer, why is health insurance different?
trinque: has nothing to do with health
trinque: it's a poll tax
PeterL: I thought that was one of the things obummercare was supposed to fix, but it seems the only options offered are hyperexpensive
mircea_popescu: the us health care problem has only one solution, and it's compressive not expansive. a) shoot all the malades imaginaires (such as, fine example, https://archive.is/yyQny). these literally have to be shot, no possible two ways about it ; b) make it impossible for doctors to give the patient benefits. no days off from work ; no financial payments dependent on what doctor says on paper. nothing. no more painkillers of any kind
mircea_popescu: dispensed in the us by health insurance.
mircea_popescu: once that's done, 98 to 99.9% of all "costs" suddenly vanish, and suddenly you get a sane health system.
mircea_popescu: make it illegal to medicalize convenience, of all kinds. i get it that it'd be convenient for the politicians if the doctors distributed social payola to the poor under the pretense of "health". dun work that way regardless.
PeterL: ^ WTF, why does this derp think we want to hear about their sinus infection? What is wrong with these people?
mircea_popescu: much like black mold, they took advantage of a dirty environment and spread.
mircea_popescu: but she's the reason for MOST of the medical costs.

asciilifeform: e.g., 'This case is complex because it involves classified discovery that requires a top secret clearance to review. In order to make use of the classified discovery at trial, counsel will have to engage in CIPA litigation. This requires that defense counsel be able to review the discovery, determine a trial strategy and decide what discovery and evidence will be necessaryfor trial, in advance of the currentlyscheduled hearing date o
asciilifeform: f July 5. Defense counsel received the discovery in a SCIF on June 13, 2016. This includes, however, a disc of emails that cannot currently be reviewed, as a secure computer has not yet been provided, as well as the files of the case agents, which are also classified and were not previously available to counsel..'
mircea_popescu: lol. defendant's counsel is unable to review 1tb of data in a foreign language + 36k individual records also in a foreign language made available by prosecution a week before trial date.
